At least 11 people have been confirmed dead in a ghastly road accident and scores of others sustained various degrees of injuries along Nasarawa Eggon-Akwanga road.
According to reports, a heavily-loaded Dangote Cement trailer truck lost control of its brakes and ran into a Toyota Sharon vehicle, killing all the 11 passengers including the driver.
According to eye-witnesses revealed that the victims were crushed beyond recognition and other vehicles also ran into the accident scene, which caused some of their passengers to sustain injuries.
The Federal Road Safety Corps, Army and the police are currently assisting in the rescue operation to clear the bodies of the deceased still lying on the side of the road.
